Can you read children who may not yet verbally communicate? Do you get great pleasure and joy from watching children who are focused and working quietly? Do you know when not to interrupt? Do you have the patience for toilet-training and the stomach for poo? 

We have an opportunity for an ECE registered teacher to join our young community team (18 months–3 years) on a full-time basis, 9.30am–6pm.  

In this classroom, we nurture independence by allowing children to develop and learn through exploration and 'sensorial' experimentation. We also practice simple activities from everyday 'practical life' that are exciting to children.

Soon to be licensed for 110 children, we are rapidly growing. We have 3 classrooms in a brand-new purpose-built facility with an outdoor classroom that features trees, real grass, flowers and vegetable gardens.  

Whilst a Montessori qualification is desirable, what is essential is that you have a basic understanding of, and a willingness to learn and apply the Montessori teaching philosophy in our classrooms. Full training and support is given.

If you are a team player who is passionate about nurturing independence, respecting everyone and everything, and showing children how to do simple daily tasks, allowing them to make safe mistakes in order to learn…then APPLY NOW!

Being privately-owned, you can expect something different when you apply to work here. We are a very capable team of individuals from all walks of life – we respect and support each other, and we are continually learning.  

Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.

How to apply

Please apply by emailing – tell us why being child-led is important to you.
